Thanks, That little silver box has nothing to do with any intake......

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the little black boxes on the Strut towers...
Ten.... Tien... Tein... Something like that. EDFC = Every Day Fun Controller???

Thanks everybody.

The Teins are very nice. Better than Konis. Stiffer and tighter, yet put into soft the wife doesn't object like she did with the Konis. And on a track, well they just handle.
I love being able to keep it softer until the tires heat up and then switch on the fly.

Boost controler is mounted on the rad. support. Prevents the temptation to turn it up.
No turbo timer required. Just watch the EGT, when they fall below 1000 shut her down.
